governor. rather new jersey governor chris christie and andrew cuomo initially asked washington for about 79 billion dollars to rebuild their states and they are now thanking the president for his 60.4 billion dollars commitment and the white house wrote a letter to congress yesterday that says these are funds necessary to finance a needed recovery effort and to help the the region prepare for future challenges, including future severe storms and coastal flooding, swells impacts associated with a changing climate. but, amid the debt debate in d.c., there are questions how easy it will be to get congress to write such a big check and speaker boehner's spokesman says we will review it and al rogers says it's up to congress to help those hurt by sandy, but also our responsibility during these tight budget times to make sure that the victims of this storm are getting the most of every single recovery dollar, and to ensure that the disaster funds are timed and targeted in the most efficient and appropriate manner. the democratic senator from new york has acknowledged now that this is going to
cuomo a democrat and new jersey governor chris christie a republic originally told the white house they wanted $79 billion just for new york and new jersey. the white house instead asked congress for this $60.4 billion. the white house office of management and budget sent a letter to speaker of the house john boehner to say that this $60.4 billion would be, quote: funds necessary to finance a needed recovery effort and to help the region prepare for future challenges, including future storms, severe storms and coastal flooding as well as impact associated with a changing climate. governor cuomo and governor christie thanked president obama for all this money in a statement, this pledged money and the senators from their states chuck schumer, frank lautenberg, kristen gillibrand all democrats said this $60.4 billion is a good start but they acknowledged that congress has other things on its plate and this money is not all guaranteed. some members they think might push for some spending cuts to offset all this new spending. they said, quote: this is going to be a tough fight in the
in the most efficient and appropriate manor. new jersey governor chris christie and andrew cuomo originally asked for about $79 billion. and even though this $60.4 billion is much less, they are thankful for president obama's commitment and the democratic senators from new york and new jersey say that this is going to be a tough fight in congress given the fiscal cliff. and some members have not been friendly to disaster relief. but the care with which this package has been putting to has given us a good head start. after hurricane katrina, the government ended up spending more than $120 billion in aid to affected areas. many lawmakers this weekend are saying they think $60.4 billion for sandy relief is a good start. rick? >> thanks very much. peter doosey in cash -- in washington. >> december 1972, and a hope to return. a private company is picking up the mission and planing to make lunar travel affordable to anyone with an extra $1.5 billion. doug mcelway has the story. >> we realize it is the stuff of science fiction. we intend to make it science fact. >> it would appear too incredible.
